Cuach Carran's movements

01 Jul 2023 - Cuach Carran is lost

Sadly Cuach Carran's tag stopped transmitting a few weeks after he was tagged and showed him still very close to his original tagging location. We can't be certain whether he perished or his tag failed. Attempts were made by our friends at the Irish National Parks and Wildlife Service to search the area for him but no trace of him or his tag could be found. 

07 Jun 2023 - Introducing Cuach Carran

Cuach is the Irish name for Cuckoo, and Carran is the name of a mountain in the Burren National Park where this bird was tagged.

On examining him, the tagging team were able to establish that Carran is a juvenile male, hatched last year. All of our other tagged birds this year are full adults.

Since being tagged, Carran has remained at his tagging location.
